I Cover The Waterfront: Denver's Favorite Fashion Event Returns.

Rsz_25_fw11

The eighth annual Riverfront Park Fashion Show brings some of fashion’s best and brightest to Denver’s Riverfront neighborhood. The theme is “Classic” but don’t expect to see your mother’s flat knit and pearls strutting down the catwalk.  This year the “Crack Pack” is sure to have fashion addicts hooked on the edgy, youthful looks that define classic in a fresh new way.  

 

The luxury travel collection by Ever promises a great mix of comfort and style, grounded in the California casual mode. Ever has bumped up the surf style and skater chic to create comfortable separates suitable for the girl or guy-on-the-go. Especially if where you’re going involves looking great and dressing easy. Well chosen fabrics and textures layered together give you many options for the clothes you want to live in.  

If you’re in for something a bit more eclectic, you’ll find it in the Resort and Fall collections presented by Chris Benz.  His madcap mix of tweed, chiffon, silk twill, draped bows and ruffles mashes up beautifully in quirky shapes put together like a ColorForm. He calls it “instinctual design”, I call it unbelievably cool. There is a boldness to Benz that is original and accessible, leaving the wearer to put herself in front of the fashion and the designer behind it.   I love this crimson floral wrap dress, an elegant, sexy little number and very old Hollywood glam

 

If you’re a denim junkie, you’ll be jonesing over the new William Rast collection. Initially conceptualized and founded by Justin Timberlake in 2005, William Rast designer (and Timberlake’s childhood friend) Trace Ayala, brings a contemporary context to American denim heritage. A bit biker culture, a bit Hollywood hipster, the fall line brings a much sleeker and refined look to Rast and not an easy thing to do with the denim workhorse. Totally new fits, premium fabrics, washes, and detailed stitching bring the look fashion forward and high style. If it looks as good on the runway as it does on JT… I’m just sayin’. 

The Riverfront Park Fashion Show knows how to bring out the well-heeled crowd. More than 1400 attended last year and Saturday’s affair promises to be no different. Proceeds from the August 13th event benefit Denver Health Foundation. "The Denver Health Foundation supports Denver Health in its mission to sustain and advance the health and well being of Denver and the Rocky Mountain region". Tempting food and drinks provided by Zengo, Table 6 and the Brazilian flavors of Fogo de Chao. Don’t miss the desserts by Happy Cakes! To purchase tickets click here.
